Adamello-Brenta Nature Park

The Adamello-Brenta Nature Reserve is characterised by a spectacular natural environment: The Brenta Dolomites, the mighty Adamello glacier and the numerous hiking paths are the main attractions

The Adamello-Brenta Nature Park, the largest protected area in the Trentino, is located in its western part and covers impressive 620 km². In this unique landscape are the Adamello and Brenta mountain groups and the Val Rendena valley, while the Val di Non, the Val di Sole and the Giudicarie area surround the nature park. From an altitude of 477 m a.s.l., it extends to 3,558 m a.s.l., up to the dizzying heights of the peaks. When the Adamello-Brenta Nature Park was created in 1967, thanks to a special law of the Autonomous Province of Trento, it was the first of its kind throughout Italy.

The typical landscape of the central-southern main Alpine ridge characterises the area: fir, beech and larch forests and wide flower meadows and alpine pastures can be found here. In addition, peat bogs, river courses and rocky areas extend over all altitudes. The higher areas have a unique geological diversity, with the Brenta Dolomites to the east and the Adamello-Presanella massif to the west. Thanks to this unique geology and its geomorphological heritage, it is considered a UNESCO Geopark. The nature park includes numerous unspoilt valleys, each with its own character and unique landscape.

Concerning flora and fauna, both are richly represented. All known Alpine animals can be found here: Deer and roe deer, chamois and squirrel, marmot and fox, badger, snow grouse, wood grouse and many more. Within the nature park area also lives the brown bear, which was resettled in its original home in the Trentino in 1996 through the "Life Ursus" project. The nature park team offers a wide range of interesting activities, excursions, walks and workshops for the whole family to get to know this wonderful protected area.
